Team Up for St. Jude

This holiday season, please consider joining us as we Team Up 4 St. Jude with donations through Varsity Shop toward finding a cure against childhood cancer. Now, you can donate directly to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital at checkout. Thanks to generous donors like you, no family has to worry about whether they can afford the treatments their children need.
